FCanon was an online e-zine of fan fiction that departed from TV show canon. Two issues were published in 2001.

From the publisher's mission statement:

"WHAT'S WRONG WITH CANON? Nothing. And everything. Depending on your point of view. Nothing at all if you love and watch Star Trek, or any other show for that matter, and never wonder 'what if'? Ah, but if you do dare to dream of another scenario, therein lies the problem. Should you be forced to follow what has gone before, and boldly go where the series writers are already heading? Or should you be especially heinous, and plunge yourself into completely new, uncharted and never to be seen on tv in our lifetime, territories of fandom dreaming? I personally hope you choose the latter, it's a lot more fun and in my opinion makes for much better fanfiction.

Canon is the strangler of the muse, and its best excuse for being lazy. I can't make it happen because in 'X' episode 'Y' dies, or 'Y' character can't have this relationship, because 'Y' never did that in the rest of the series. The muse turns gray. S/he shrivels and dies. Canon can be deadly. Writing under canon's yoke puts unnecessary limitations on a creative outlet that is supposed to be, first and foremost, fun.

That's the nature of why we write these stories, because we're playing with our virtual Barbies, putting them in situations they were never originally intended to go."[1]
